When NBC airs a live broadcast of The Sound of Music in 2013, you'll see none other than Carrie Underwood as Maria von Trapp, stepping into the iconic role made famous by Julie Andrews in the 1965 film adaptation.

FIONA LOCKE STUDIO OSCAR GLOW TREATMENT
Like Spanx, spray tans have become a red carpet staple. Carrie Underwood's go-to pro spends over two hours exfoliating and bronzing the star with St. Tropez Tanning Mist to make sure the singer looks sun-kissed, not like she's transitioning into an Oompa Loompa.
CARRIE: MILD TO WILD
She's got range, and we're not just talking about her voice. We have a feeling Carrie Underwood is one of the few women in the world to have a closet that houses both her Grammy ensemble, a princess-inspired sparkly Gomez-Grazia, and this avant-garde structured blue mini.
CARRIE UNDERWOOD: AMERICAN IDOL
Watch a clip of Carrie Underwood on American Idol
The winner of Idol's fourth season in 2005, Underwood quickly headed for country superstardom with her debut album, Some Hearts, and its smash single, "Jesus Take the Wheel." "I think tonight kind of proved that American Idol can transcend the talent show stereotype it has," she said in 2007, when she was named Grammy's best new artist. The star has since taken home four more awards, and is up for best country song and best country solo performance this year.
Since she no longer has her official purse holder, the star's solution is to leave her bag behind and opt for impactful shoes instead – which she wears with a black-and-tangerine number (the skirt is Diane von Furstenberg) and choppy new bangs at a Grammy Nominee party in Nashville.

Though we're used to seeing the country star in sparkly ballgowns, we're digging this change of pace. She selects a sleek Katharine Kidd peplum jumpsuit with cap-toe heels, a Jill Milan clutch and Vahan jewels to the CMT Artists of the Year awards in Franklin, Tenn.
Last Christmas, the singer, seen here with her own rescue dogs Ace and Penny, saved two pups she found on the interstate near her childhood home in Oklahoma. Sadly, one dog died, but she took the other pup, Stella, to an emergency vet and fostered her until she was adopted.
Carrie Underwood rehearses on Saturday for the 40th American Music Awards, which are being held Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE.
